Narrative in Fiction: Whispers in the Background
Narrative is non-dialogue text that advances the story line while capturing, maintaining or heightening reader interest. The main factors of reader interest are curiosity and tension. The interested reader wants to see what's just around the corner, and he wants it to be something other than what he expects.
